    I think the tires would be listed on the Maxxis site before in retailers stock. I saw something on Pinkbike about the soon to be release but of course a date was never given.

    I'll be waiting to hear how everybody likes the non DH casing version that only has 3C Maxx Terra instead of the MaxxGrip on the DH version. I have a feeling alot of the love for this tyre will die for a lot of people when they give the lighter, less stickier compound version a try. Friend has one on the front of his Ripmo and the compound makes 3C MaxxTerra compound feel like hard plastic almost and you can ONLY get MaxxGrip on DH casing tyres.
    One day your life will flash before your eyes, will it be worth watching??

    It shows them in the 2019 Maxxis Catalog. Should be soon hopefully.

    I am assuming will probably just release them in 2.5s?

    Ah, sorry, my bad, only ride 29ers, did not look at the smaller offerings. Interesting that Maxxis don't think that 29ers would benefit or want MaxxGrip, except in a DH casing

    Yeah, the lack of configurations is a little irritating. I switched to a DD casing in the back and the only 2.5 options were a DHF and an Aggressor. I was really hoping the Assegai was going to be available in a MaxxGrip and MaxTerra as well as Exo and DD. Wishful thinking? Probably. LOL
